Hector I. Michelena, M.D., studies valvular heart disease from clinical outcomes and pathophysiology perspectives. Dr. Michelena utilizes clinical and echocardiographic databases as well as echocardiographic and computerized tomography imaging data in his valvular research. He has a keen interest in the aortic valve, specifically the bicuspid aortic valve condition and its related aortopathy. Mitral and tricuspid valve diseases also are areas of research for Dr. Michelena. He is working to expand his bicuspid aortic valve clinical research to include biomarkers.
Through his research and research collaborations across the United States and Europe, Dr. Michelena hopes to contribute to the clinical decision-making in patients with aortic valve disease and mitral valve disease. This may potentially be accomplished through identifying markers of prognosis, understanding surgical timings of intervention and implementing new treatments.
